Imagining holding shares since 2012, one would see losses amounting to 91.7% decline for SembCorp Marine.

Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) lost 73.4% of its value. How could SPH lost so much?

Singapore Airlines lost 68.2% (without taking into account the impact of the rights issue recently).

SembCorp Industries lost 67% and Keppel Corporation lost 50.9%. All three (including SembCorp Marine) were impacted severely with plunging oil prices.
